Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says says Liverpool are a big threat to all of the Premier League's biggest sides.

The City boss was full of praise for his opposite number Jurgen Klopp, a manager he went head-to-head with during his time managing in the Bundesliga.

“In terms of the results until now, yes [they are a threat against the best sides],” he said. “But it’s a new game and anything can happen.

“Klopp is a top coach. It’s an attacking side. Win the ball and attack. He likes to attack in four, five, six seconds all the time.

“Teams when they attack you feel comfortable and when they defend deep sometimes they have more problems. It’s a top team.

“He’s a top trainer. I respect a lot. Huge talented players, English players and foreign players. I think it’s a really good team.

“A good test against one of the best teams in the Premier League. Tough game.”
